requires that anyone who finds a way to make use of such riches by applying labor or technology or risk taking are required to pay royalties of unknown amounts. potentially billions, possibly tens of billions. over an extended period, ill-defined period of time to the new international sea bed authority for distributions to less developed countries. this in my view is a new idea of enormous consequence. it establishes a way of looking at industry investment and talent, risk, and good fortune that argues in favor of distributing a significant portion of the minerals in the deep sea beds to developing countries. i suppose it's also conceivable that it could be a precedent for the resources of outer space. the principal that advanced countries when they make use that belonged to no one owe royalties to less developed countries is a novel principal that has no clear limits. i know of no other treaty that follows that pattern. the idea is fundamental and integral. the major reason i believe we should not so that treaty ratified. i don't argue against developed countries providing financial a

world of care and support. and what we have discovered is that people that use a, what they get out of that is what we call the network of fact. we have jill in the center of the network and you can see on the upper side where you have a health care provider to put information into her fault about her health care. if you have heard daughter using the mobile application to update people on the go. you have the neighbor that tax the schedule to see when he is going shopping -- this is an illustration of a network of fact or network model of the good life. the neighbor says, always check on line to see what joe needs. the physician's assistant says it is easy to share the test results. the personal care worker says i've posted on the loose handrail and they handled it right away. her sister says, i am part of a team now, what a relief. out of this idea of the network of fact, one is that this is what joe wants. this is her key to a good life. her network is actually her gateway to a good life and her ability to stay home. and we will launch a touch screen interface for those that want
for the u.s. the main point being that, let's not forget we're outperforming the energy by a wide margin. thank you. >> well, thank you very much. let me start with a few questions. this analogy to what was done with sematech i think is an intriguing one. my recollection of that experience was that the industry itself, the semiconductor firms themselves and others came to washington and basically said we need -- we need to do this. we want to do this. we need government assistance to help us get started and we did that at the same time, the original members are u.s. companies. i think nac applied for membership and was not permitted to be a member at that time. was my recollection. i guess what i'm now sort of struggling with is, if there were to be con sor sha of companies to pursue their technology in other areas, how do we go about identifying that organization, is there a critical mass of energy that are u.s. based or that have operations in the united states that would want to do such a thing? i guess those are some obvious questions. mr. wolff, do you have thoughts on it? >> just t
to determine the value of the u.s. continental shelf. as such, if the u.s. concedes to the convention, it will be making an open-ended commitment to transfer incalcuable sum. we know the following fact. exceeding could expose the united states to baseless lawsuits. they are full-time, not subject to appeal and are enforceable in the united states. finally, in regard to u.s. rights to mine the deep seabed we know the following facts. pursuant to u.s. law, long standing u.s. policy and customary international law, u.s. persons and corporations have the right to explore and exploit the deep seabed regardless of whether or not the united states is a part. these are the facts. collectively they indicate there are real costs and foreseeable risks that the u.s. will undertake if it joins the convention. proponents claim there are no costs whatsoever. the u.s. will only enjoy benefits for membership. if only the u.s. would join the convention, everything would work out just fine. in light of the facts, i believe it's the proponents claims that are based in methodology and bl
surveillance act was passed in 1978. to curb abuses occurring in the use of intelligence, foreign and domestic. it was not passed for the purpose of excluding all foreign intelligence from the u.s., but to regulate and separate foreign and domestic intelligence collection. collection of foreign intelligence requires that there is a collection of foreign intelligence that requires merely that there is probable cause to believe that an actor is an agent of the foreign government and foreign intelligence is a significant purpose of the collection. foreign intelligence collection is only a significant purpose of the collection and we are left to wonder what is the primary purpose of information gathering? with the patriot act, we headed members of the organizations and terrorists to the low threshold for collecting intelligence. fisa recognizes that it falls under the requirements of fourth amendment when persons are implicated. such a low threshold for intelligence with a low threshold diligent oversight and reporting is required to ensure that the collection is not dpr a broader purpose than nec
sustainable level. the focus and allow the u.s. to regain clean energy investment dollars in 2011. that said, it's unlikely that the u.s. will top the table in 2012. as policy appears to be particularly in the wind sector. finally, i would like to address the question of what is next for chinese clean energy companies. as the industry cools at home, many are now seeking opportunities abroad. china has a surplus of savings and a strong need for further investment to drive the economic growth, including more investment overseas. as government has encouraged the clean energy industry to do this. chinese solar companies have exploited their equipment to germany, the united states, and elsewhere for years. the chinese wind turbine and other clean tech investors have remained confined to the domestic market. in coming months, we anticipate chinese power companies and banks developing and clean energy problems abroad. not only in the united states but in europe and in emerging markets, particularly in latin america. at the same time, american and european clean companies continue to sell their prod

the treaty would be a boom to the u.s. economic growth by providing american companies with the legal certainty and the stability that they need to hire and invest. it would codify the u.s. legal rights international shipping lanes and delay and service under water cables and to develop vast amounts of oil, natural gas and minerals off the u.s. coast and in the deep water sea bed. the treaty would benefit several industries keen to economic growth, job creation and u.s. competitiveness. it would benefit the energy industry by providing sovereign rights to seabed resources' 200 miles off our coast. if certain geological criteria are met, the zone of the sovereignty could extend to 600 miles or the so-called extended continental shelf. proper delineation of the extended continental shelf could bring an additional 4.1 million square miles of ocean floor under u.s. sovereign rights, an area larger than the lowest -- than the lower 48 states. the treaty would also allow the u.s. to have a u.s. expert elected to the international body that determines the claims in the arctic and there are g
